Geysers, waterfalls and snow are the images embedded in our minds after our stay at Yellowstone National Park. The day we drove from Grand Teton NP to Yellowstone was crisp and clear with a beautiful blue sky. Upon entering Yellowstone, we began to see drifts of snow and we could not resist stopping and getting photographs. It was truly a Merry May!
After registering at Fishing Bridge RV Park, we took a bike ride to explore the Fishing Bridge area. The next morning, there was a light dusting of snow on the ground. The weather cleared near noon so we set off for Old Faithful.
Arriving at Old Faithful was truly exciting; within 5 minutes of our arrival Old Faithful erupted and with it brought back those long ago grade school memories of learning about Old Faithful from a textbook. We then proceeded into the Old Faithful Inn to soak up its “parkitecture” as they call it. After touring the Inn, we sat down in the Dining Room for a gourmet lunch in front of their huge hearth. Following lunch, we made our way back to the viewing area to watch Old Faithful erupt for a second time. Later, as we walked back to the parking lot, we discovered a bison directly in front of our truck!
That evening and the following five days, we experienced snow falling for the first time in a number of years. Despite the snowy conditions, there was a period in each day that we were able to venture out to experience the wonders of this park.
